Radio Management

The Radio Management page allows you to configure the radio channel on which the AP needs to operate. This reduces interference and helps to optimize the AP radio performance by operating in an optimal RF channel and bandwidth. The radio management configuration is global to a site and can be accessed from the advanced menu in the Inventory page. The APs in the site use only the selected channels and allowed channels for the channel width.

Changing these settings might disconnect clients from the network.

Follow these steps to configure a radio channel on which the AP should operate:

  1. Click the Inventory tile on the Aruba Instant On home page or click the Site Health banner and the click on Show inventory.
  2. Click the advanced settings () icon and select Radio management.
  3. Choose a Channel width for each of the following:
    1. 2.4 GHz Radio—20MHz (default) or 20/40 MHz.
    2. 5 GHz Radio—20/40 MHz or 20/40/80 MHz (default).
    1. Based on your selection for each radio, the Channel selection options are refreshed. All channels are enabled by default and are displayed in orange. The disabled channels are displayed in gray.
    2. Configure the Transmit power range for the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radios by adjusting the slider between a minimum and maximum value. For example, if the slider is set between Very high and Max, the radio transmits between 30 dBm and maximum power. The available values are:
